Happy Endings (ABC)

Are you watching “Happy Endings“? You should. It’s one of the best sitcoms on TV thanks to a potent combination of top-notch writing and undeniable talent and chemistry amongst a cast that includes Zachary Knighton, Adam Pally, Damon Wayans, Jr., Eliza Coupe, Casey Wilson, and Elisha Cuthbert. (Catch up on full episodes here.)  In this Wednesday’s episode “SNL” star Bobby Moynihan guests as as a bully who sets his sights on Dave (Knighton) at the gym. (Watch a preview below.) So what does the cast watch when they come home from a long day of work? You might be surprised at their dramatic answers…

THE WALKING DEAD” – Zach Knighton (Dave): I love “The Walking Dead.” It is sometimes hokey and it is silly and I don’t know why, but I keep watching it. I love zombies, so [I guess] zombies are the reason I keep watching. Watch Full Episodes of “The Walking Dead.”

GAME OF THRONES” – Eliza Coupe (Jane):  This is not a joke, but I don’t have TV. I am going to be buying a house, but I have an apartment that I steal the cable from the guy below me, so I get whatever channels are available.  But I am obsessed with “Game of Thrones.” I love it so much. HBO Subscribers: Watch Full Episodes of “Game of Thrones.”

ENLIGHTENED” – Casey Wilson (Penny):  I am loving “Englightened” on HBO. I absolutely love Mike White, the creator, and I love Laura Dern. I think it is beautiful, funny, weird and dark. HBO Subscribers: Watch Full Episodes of “Enlightened.”

OPRAH’S MASTER CLASS” – Elisha Cuthbert (Alex): I like Oprah’s “Master Class” just because it is interesting hearing other people talk about their life and their stories.

FAMILY GUY” – Damon Wayans, Jr. (Brad):  Yes, I am still watching “Family Guy.” I can’t help myself. Watch Full Episodes of “Family Guy.”

MODERN FAMILY” - Zach Knighton (Dave):  I am a big “Modern Family” fan. I don’t know how “Modern Family” does it because by all accounts, it shouldn’t be funny, but it is good. I just love all those people. They are awesome. I could watch Ed O’Neill all day long. He is the best.  Watch Full Episodes of “Modern Family.”

THE BACHELOR” – Eliza Coupe (Jane): My husband is oddly obsessed with “The Bachelor,” so I have to watch that with him. Every time at the end of the show when they say, “If you want to nominate someone as ‘The Bachelor,’” he says, “Will you nominate me?” Watch Full Episodes of “The Bachelor.”

[ALL] REAL HOUSEWIVES“ - Casey Wilson (Penny): Of course, I am watching all things “Housewives.” I am always real caught up with that. The “Real Housewives” franchise I have been with since day one. It is my whole life. It is who I am!! Watch Full Episodes of  “The Real Housewives of Orange County.”

INTERVENTION” – Elisha Cuthbert (Alex):  I like “Intervention,” which is a dark, dark show, but I just love it for the character study of it. To see these people in their darkest place and, hopefully, overcome it and come back and be healthy again. I think I am more interested in those kinds of shows on an actor’s level to see where they are at at the point in their life. I love the idea of the study of people. Maybe that is why I like “Master Class” because it is the study of their lives. Watch Full Episodes of “Intervention.”

ARCHER” – Damon Wayans, Jr. (Brad): I really like “Archer.” I think it’s funny. I am a cartoon-type of guy.

IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN PHILADELPHIA” - Zach Knighton (Dave): I am really good friends with all the guys who created “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” so I have to throw that one in there because their show is really cool.

HOMELAND” – Casey Wilson (Penny): I love “Homeland” because it is awesome. Showtime Subscribers: Watch Full Episodes of “Homeland.”

IRON CHEF AMERICA” – Elisha Cuthbert (Alex):  I am obsessed with the Food Network. [If I had to pick], I would say “Iron Chef America.” I love when they battle. I love to cook.

I SHOULDN’T BE ALIVE” – Damon Wayans, Jr. (Brad): I like “I Shouldn’t be Alive” It is just so crazy.
